Death toll from defective GM ignition switches rises to 104

DETROIT - The death toll from faulty ignition switches in small cars made by General Motors has reached 104.

Victims' families are being offered compensation of at least $1 million each by attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who was hired by GM last year. In addition, GM has agreed to make offers to 191 people who were injured in crashes caused by the switches in the Chevrolet Cobalt and other older-model cars.

GM recalled 2.6 million of the cars last year, but acknowledged it knew about problems with the switches for more than a decade.
